Styrofoam Saturday

From Medfield Green –

This Saturday is Week 5 of Medfield Green Month

9-1 at the Transfer Station

It’s the final week of MGM in May! 

Are you a darker shade of green because you’ve been recycling all month?

We will be collecting Styrofoam to be recycled.  Foam items DO NOT have to display the recycling symbol 6 in the triangle with the PS underneath it, but do need to be cleaned and rinsed.  Refoamit will accept packing blocks, produce and meat trays, take out containers (please rinse), hot cups such as Dunkin’ Donuts, Honey Dew and Cumberland Farms (without paper or cardboard infused), foam egg cartons, trays, white insulation sheets, #4 PE Polyethylene foam, #5 PP Polypro foam, bubble wrap and packing peanuts (bagged separately from your foam).  They WILL NOT accept:  plastic utensils, foam cups infused with cardboard or paper such as McDonald’s, Newman and Burger King (ice tea cup), biodegradable meat trays for example GenPak without the recycling symbol, cardboard egg cartons, soft foam pads, food containers with plastic film attached (some ground turkey comes in these containers), blue or pink insulation sheets.


** We could use some help on Saturday with collecting/sorting – please respond to this email if you have an hour or so to spare!


The next Styrofoam collection will be October 31, 2015 at the Transfer Station! 


Bikes Not Bombs will be at the American Legion 9-12 collecting bicycles – not rusted  (consider a $10 donation/bike to cover cost of bike to be sent overseas) – for more info visit


Remember to get your new stickers at the DPW –

the current stickers expire at the end of June $50/2 yrs


Hope to see you at the Transfer Station

the place to be in May!

Next Medfield Green Month will be in October!
